Russia vs Cyprus
Russia faces Cyprus after destroying San Marino at the weekend 9-0 but they now host a much more difficult minnow in Cyrpus, Cyprus who only conceded the 89th-minute winner away in Scotland on Saturday night will fancy their chances of giving Russia a game. The handicap is +2@ 1.75 and I think that is worth a go today. The line feels like it is a massive overreaction to the 9-0 win for Russia, their squad is mainly made of home-based players and I believe they are worth taking on today. Bar being beat by Belgium and Portugal you would really have to go back to 2006 since Cyprus lost an away match to a side of around Russia’s standings by 3 goals or more. Taking a chance on Cyprus +2, I am also taking a chance on the under goals in this match as I believe Cyprus can keep it tight.
